If we were chatting over a cup of tea this morning… I’d tell you My Other Half proposed and I said yes!!!
Even as I write this, I still can’t really believe it. We’re engaged!!! It doesn’t feel real yet. I am so incredibly happy and we are both over the moon with excitement!
We kept the engagement a secret from everyone (except our parents, who were on the cruise with us) for an entire week. That’s right – we’ve been engaged since November 24th, 2013 – a whole 15 days ago! It was so exciting to come home from our trip and tell our family and friends.
We’ve been together for almost six years, so I suppose nothing in our day-to-day life has really changed. Except somehow I feel like it has. It’s my fiancé who put up our Christmas tree this weekend and my fiancé who I’m having dinner with tonight and my fiancé who gave me a kiss for no reason at all. There’s something different now, something special. It’s such a novelty to look at him and know he’s going to be my husband!
I’m sure many people think this was a long time coming, but for us the timing feels just right. We are so blessed. I know a lot of readers will have questions about the proposal, and I promise to blog about it soon, but for now, let’s just say he absolutely blew me away. I have a sneaky trickster on my hands! To say I was surprised is an understatement – I was speechless. Yes, me – speechless! All four of us were on cloud nine.
Thank you to everyone who has called, emailed, texted, tweeted, liked and commented to congratulate us. You have no idea how much we appreciate your support!
Also, a big thank-you to Ken from The Creative Department for the beautiful engagement announcement. You are so talented and awesome!
